I had the opportunty to visit this restaurant and was quite pleased with everything. I ordered the lamb tagine with the charmaoulla sauce over rice. It was out of this world. Now I have my husband and friends hooked on this place.

The tagines (meat stew usually served over cous-cous) are delicious. There is a choice of chicken or lamb in several different aromatic sauces. My personal favorite sauce is the preserved lemon and olives. The mint tea served in the traditional silver teapot and small glasses is refreshingly minty, body-warming, and deliciously sugared. The other dishes on the menu are decent, but not outstanding in comparison to other restaurants in the area that serve Middle Eastern food. The service leaves something to be desired, but the taste of the tagines to me make it a worthwhile dining experience. The atmosphere is most certainly more hip and sophisticated than some of the other Middle Eastern food joints in the area.

Our waitress must have been having a bad day. The food was ok...good hummus. Pita is needing work. Cold and not as good as neighboring Hummus Place or Chickpea. I'd go back just to mix up the flavors of these 3 places.

I live in New York but I'm currently away at college. Over winter break, I try to take advatage of NY food as best I can. I went here with my mom. I had the falafel sandwich. It comes with french fries, and they readily substituted salad at my request. The salad was lovely and the sandwich was delicious. My mom got the chicken tagine with apricots and prunes. My mom loved it and the portion was very generous. The only drawback was that the food took a long time to come. This was probably because we were there during brunch time when everyone else was ordering eggs and the tagine probably took longer. Our meal including tax and tip was $20. I can't wait to go back.

I could eat Mogador's Greek salad every day for the rest of my life and be happy. The feta cheese in it is sublime. Everything here is really good...the wait is often long, but once you are seated, prepare for a wonderful dining experience!

The best! For under $40 we shared more food than we could come close to finishing! We had 2 huge pots of minty moroccan green tea, a wonderful tabouli salad with warm pitas, I had the falafel platter which came with 7 huge patties that I couldn't even finish, mild yogurt sauce and a fresh chopped vegetable salad, my husband enjoyed the sausage couscous and was so full afterward he could hardly stand up. The atmosphere was cozy and candlelit with soft music playing. It was a perfect ending to our day of holiday shopping.

The food was so good that I wanted to cry. As an Israeli I miss home so much and this please gave me comfort. I had the chicken tanjun un kazablanka sauce and it was amaizing. If you have not visited there yet do yourself a favor - Just go.
